Our Company has been in the business since 1989. In the years 1989-1996 we operated as Firma Remontowo-Budowlana TORKRET. Since 2010 our name has been Specjalistyczne Przedsiębiorstwo Budowlane TORKRET sp. z o.o. spółka komandytowa.
Our first repairs were wet process, the so-called 'vusokret', sprayed concrete. We used it among others when repairing the Imhoff settlement tanks of the sewage treatment plant in Węgrowo in 1989.
Between the years1990-1991 and 1997-1998 we repaired the cooling towers of the Adamów Power Plant (one of the biggest in Poland) where we used the technique of replacement of the corroded concrete with concrete sprayed on the so-called 'windows'.
We were the first in Poland to perform a complete repair of a chimney shaft H=150 from the level of the chimney base. It was in 1995 and we used the dry-mix process.
In 2004 dry shotcrete was used when we saved the gothic vaulting of the Transfiguration Parish Church in Poznan.
Between 2003-2004 we performed shotcreting of slopes that had been previously strengthened by mailing. The slopes’ height was reaching up to 22 m. The total surface area covered approx. 5000 square meters.
Between 2007-2008 we strengthened and repaired the load bearing structure of flyovers at Poznan’s Franowo where we incorporated over 1000 cubic meters of shotcrete.
With over 20 years in business we have repaired several hundreds of structures with different levels of damage.
Since 2012 we have been a member of the American Shotcrete Association (we previously were at the British Sprayed Concrete Association).
We co-operate with many scientific centers in Poland, mainly:
- Division of Reinforced Concrete Structures at the Poznan University of Technology
- Road and Bridge Research Institute in Warsaw and Zmigrod
- Building Technology Institute in Warsaw
We have been the forerunner of shotcrete use for architectural applications in Poland.
